Big Scrub past & present map

The Big Scrub once covered approximately 75,000 hectares.

It extended from the coastal plain inland from Ballina to Lismore in the eastand to the edge of Meerschaum Vale in the south to the Nightcap, Goonengerry and Byron Bay in the north, including the villages of Alstonville, Clunes and Bangalow.

Now, less than 1% remains in small scattered remnants of rainforest, under five hectares in area and covering a total area of less than 700 hectares.
